Richard (Rick) Burchfield began his sobriety journey in 1994 after 16 years of alcoholism. After 8 years of sobriety, he decided to go back to school and received his bachelor’s in business administration in 2003 and furthered his education by receiving his master’s degree in education while receiving his Professional Counseling Degree from Lindsey Wilson College in 2009. While in school, he worked in residential treatment until I graduated where he found his passion. He has counseled in outpatient and residential treatment settings for more than 16 years. He provides lived experiences and education to the detoxification and residential units. He also shares his experiences, strengths, and hope with the newcomer, so they know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that they can recover if they choose to. “Sobriety is a lifelong journey of true happiness for me and saving lives one day at a time makes this the greatest job on earth.,” he shares with us.
There are certain bridges in life that when you cross, you know your life is changed forever. My voice is one of many that continues to echo throughout the recovery community. I had dug myself in a hole so deep that I couldn’t vision myself climbing out of. While attending undergrad at West Virginia University, I began developing an opioid addiction that at the time, didn’t realize I would eventually become powerless to. As I packed my bags for pharmacy school in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl, the first thing I put in my luggage was my addiction. We tell ourselves that we can quit any time we want. We cheat, steal, and deceive our loved ones at all costs to get that fix. By the time I was in my fifth semester of graduate school, the gravity of my addiction altered a long-term goal that I had been working towards for the past six and a half years. At the age of 26, I moved back in with my parents penniless, unemployed, uninspired, and broken. I couldn’t believe how far I had fallen. Several months prior I was living in a condo on the beach with only a year and half away from getting my Doctorate of Pharmacy. I had this giant monkey on my back that I believed I could manage on my own. My addiction continued to get worse and worse over the next several years and it was only until I entertained the idea of entering treatment was my life changed forever. I was admitted into a 28-day treatment program where I realized, I needed to transition into long-term care afterwards. Today, I am four and a half years clean. I own my own home, I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, I am state certified as Peer Recovery Support Specialist, and have been working in residential treatment facilities for the past two and half years. When I hear the phrase “Hell on Earth”, what comes to mind is what people endure in active addiction. People often ask me what I do for work and I tell them staying sober is my job, working for kathy ireland® Recovery Center is my hobby. We do recover!
